A MAN given a chance after handling stolen goods was spared jail again, after flouting the suspended jail term he received.
Burnley Crown Court heard how Simon Rooney, 29, had been given the suspended term in October 2011, after being convicted of handling stolen goods.
On August 27 this year, he had been convicted by Pennine magistrates of attempted theft of alloy wheels from a BMW, in breach of the suspended term and had been committed to the crown court for sentence.
Rooney, of Minehead Avenue, Burnley, received 15 months in prison, suspended for two years, with 12 months' supervision.
